In Buddhism

Theravada (major branch of Buddhism)

Evidently a village in Ceylon. A woman of this village, having learnt that the Thera Dighabhanaka Abhaya was reciting the Ariyavamsa patipada, went all the way to hear him, a distance of five leagues, nursing her baby the while. She arrived at the vihara and, having laid the baby down, listened to two preachers. Earlier in the day, when Abhaya Thera, having finished a portion of the sermon, was about to take some refreshment, she censured him, saying that he should have refreshed himself earlier. The thera agreed and finished the sermon and, at the last word, the woman became a sotapanna. AA.i.386.
